Yesterday I buried a friend, an inspirational man who I was lucky enough to call a friend. Crucially he was not only a class warrior, but he was an organiser and and a proud anarchist, so his dream for a new world lives on. Like Joe Hill he will never die, because that vision cannot be killed, we will carry on in the struggle to make that world anew, because neither us nor the planet deserve anything less.

The introductory podcast of the 1913 Unfinished Business series on the centenary of the Dublin Lock-out. The team look at Ireland and Dublin in the early twentieth century and introduce two of the key protagonists of the battle, the ITGWU’s Jim Larkin and the employers’ leaders William Martin Murphy. Historian Dr. Conor Kostick speaks about the genesis of the Lock-out, its politics and how it developed. We finish by asking what relevance the 1913 Lock-out has in our society one hundred years on.

There’s a much mellower affair being dished out tonight. Apart from two songs it’s all fairly chilled. Tribute is paid to to Vol. 4 on it being 41 years old yesterday, I play the Vista Chino song no other radio show will play and a couple off the new Jesu album.
